[Food Tasting Event] Lee Kum Kee

Lee Kum Kee launches first-ever Teriyaki Marinade and new packaging for its Tomato Ketchup that allows you to have fun creating instant food art!

I had a fun-filled time with Lee Kum Kee, learning cooking skills from Chef Rayner, who has previously worked with Michelin-starred Chef Joël Robuchon at L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon in Resorts World Sentosa.

I was taught 3 recipes using Lee Kum Kee Teriyaki Marinade to whoop up a yummy meal, and using the Lee Kum Kee Tomato Ketchup to create motif on food.

About Kum Kee Teriyaki Marinade, $3.70

Lee Kum Kee Teriyaki Marinade is filled with white toasted sesame seeds and no preservatives is added.

We have many local delights that use sesame seeds as ganish to enhance flavouring. So having sesame seeds inside the teriyaki marinade will definitely not goes wrong. Teriyaki sauce marry well with meat, can be used to make yakitori and teriyaki grilled meat.

Lee Kum Kee Teriyaki Marinade has it all.

Inorder to suit Singaporeans who are going on a healthy lifestyle, Lee Kum Kee has not added any preservatives to the marinade. It’s ideal for marinating and basting purposes.

Can also be used as a dipping sauce! My favourite!

Also, it’s Halal, everyone of us can enjoy it. We can even come up with yummy dishes and share some with our neighbours!

About Lee Kum Kee Tomato Ketchup, $1.25

Lee Kum Kee has repackaged their tomato ketchup. There are two types of bottles, a boy and a girl. These kiddy bottles are meant to catch the attention of our little ones, to get them involve in preparing their own meals.

The ketchup can be easily squeezed out from the bottles, allowing parents and their kids to get into creativity in food art!

Food art can be like creating a simple heart shape, polka dots, outline of a cartoon character, or even their names!

My favourite character, Rilakkuma! luvLee Kum Kee Tomato Ketchup contains no preservatives and no artificial flavouring, suitable for kids. It’s Halal too.

The size of the bottles are lightweight and portable, very convenient to bring out to picnics. I shall try it one day for picnic with my girl!


Back at my cooking class with Chef, the first dish he whooped up was,

Grilled Teriyaki Meat Kebabs (Yakitori)

Minced chicken and chicken soft bones were used here. Chef Rayner combined the meat with all the ingredients (Let me know if you want to know the ingredients) including Lee Kum Kee Teriyaki Marinade, mixed everything before portioning the meat equally for threading onto skewers.

Tsukune were then grilled for a few minutes per side, followed by glazing which was made of Lee Kum Kee Teriyaki Marinade and mirin.

Last step was to heat up the tsukune in oven for another few minutes and voila, we’re done!

And the tsukune was served with Lee Kum Kee Tomato Ketchup, toasted sesame seeds and spring onions.

So easy right? Perhaps I should invest on a oven for my new place.

Garlic Teriyaki Fried Rice

 Chef Rayner demonstrated to us how to make a bento for love ones using Lee Kum Kee Teriyaki Marinade.

From what I saw, fried rice was easy, it’s the chopping of ingredients that would be time consuming for me. So much decor was required for a bento!

For the decor, ensure the veg are all cut into the desired shapes. Boil/cook them well and keep them aside to cool down.

Chicken thigh was used in the demonstration. Chicken thigh was marinated with Lee Kum Kee Teriyaki Marinade and abit of soy sauce. It was then baked followed by dicing the chicken thigh into cubes.

Egg was added into the hot wok with oil and while stirring gently, garlic was added to fry for a minute. Rice was then added and fry together, followed by adding the chicken thigh cubes.

Finally Lee Kum Kee Teriyaki Marinade and soy sauce were added to the fried rice and mixed well.

That’s how teriyaki fried rice was made. It’s optional to season with salt and pepper.

Serve the teriyaki fried rice into the bento and add the necessary garnish. Voila!

It’s easy except for the cutting and chopping. Don’t forget to prepare the right size and shape of bento container.

Chicken Thigh Teriyaki Sandwich

Well well well, this was the easiest recipe to follow!

We’re given all the necessary ingredients, sauces and tools. We just had to come up with a sandwich, and made use to the Lee Kum Kee Tomato Ketchup to create motif.

This was the “sample” plate for us to inspire.

This was what I came up with! There wasn’t much space for me to draw motif or even to write a name. So I used the carrot cube and Tomato Ketchup to create a 3D effect on the Hello Kitty ribbon. I also used the Tomato Ketchup to draw whiskers on the Hello Kitty’s face. LOL!

The main ingredient inside the sandwich was the marinated chicken thigh was left over from the Teriyaki Fried Rice. Not bad right, food wasn’t wasted this way.

Other ingredients are the green peas, carrot, Japanese cucumber slices, thinly sliced fresh onion, mixed salad leaf, butter, Japanese Mayonnaise.

More delish food which can be cooked using the Lee Kum Kee Teriyaki Marinade.

I’m a noob when comes to cooking, but the cookery class by Lee Kum Kee were very informative, interesting and fun. I’m keeping the recipe for my own cooking sessions!

Lee Kum Kee Teriyaki Marinade and Tomato Ketchup are available at Cold Storage and Giant supermarkets.
